How to Become a Freemason

Freemasons come from all walks of life, but in order to become a Mason you must meet a few simple criteria:

  1. You must be a male, at least 18 years of age (varies by state)
  2. You must profess a belief in a Supreme Being
  3. You must be a man of good morals and reputation

In order to join you must seek admission by your own free will, and you must be recommended by a current Freemason, unanimously elected to membership and willing to assume an obligation to the fraternity.

To get started simply go to The Next Step and fill out basic information. A virtual mentor will assist you and introduce you to a local lodge.

Degrees of Masonry

As you follow the path of Masonry you will have the opportunity to earn three symbolic degrees representing the lessons of Masonry.

  1. Entered Apprentice – beginner
  2. Fellowcraft – intermediate
  3. Master Mason – expert

All Shriners are Master Masons, but not all Freemasons go on to become Shriners.
